In addition, I would like to inform you of an exciting leadership change within our community. On April 12, 2012 State Representative Marlow H. Colvin (33rd District) retired from his position after over 10 years of dedicated service to our community. He is now the V.P. of Government Affairs for ComEd, a position that will allow him to positively impact not only our community but the entire state of Illinois.
With the vacancy existing an appointment was necessary. On April 13, the 33rd District Democratic committee, including all of the committeemen of the 33rd District and I, selected a hard working replacement for Marlow H. Colvin. That individual is the Deputy of Chief of Staff of my 8th Ward Aldermanic office, Mr. Marcus C. Evans, Jr.
Rep. Marcus C. Evans, Jr. worked for my 8th Ward office since 2006, is a cancer survivor, health care advocate, youth activities director sports official and 8th Ward resident.
He is dedicated to our community and has already hit the ground running in his short time in Springfield representing us.
